OUR IMPACT ON HEALTH CARE THIS MONTH
We Did It Again: Second Set of 2-Day COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics at King Baptist Church a Success Thanks Again To CCBN/ECCBN Nurses and Other Volunteers.
Ever faithful, the nurses of The Colorado Council of Black Nurses Inc and the Eastern Colorado Council of Black Nurses Inc once again brought much needed opportunities for COVID vaccination accessibility to the Black/African American neighborhood in Park Hill on May 15 and 16, 2021. This time, CCBN/ECCBN's Loretta Tipton-Perry RN was joined by a sweet mixture of old, new, and former members as well as member hopefuls. Even the sororities of Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha were represented. Shown in alphabetical order are RN's Councilwoman Jennifer Allen-Thomas, Elerie Archer, President Robin Bruce, Arletta Cockrell, Christine Foster, Dorothy Reid, Lee Thomas, and event coordinator Loretta Tipton-Perry.
CCBN Inspires Denver Public Schools Gifted and Talented Students About Nursing
On Wednesday, May 5, 2021, nearly 60 students in the Gifted and Talented Program at Denver Public Schools were inspired about the profession of Nursing thanks to CCBN members Christine Foster MSN, RN, Kelci Boyard BSN, RN and Janaye Culton CNA, NS. The students, who received a well rounded introduction of Nursing from Nurse Pathway careers through doctoral Nursing, were able to ask questions and receive real time answers. A big hand clap to DPS High School GT Coordinator Greg Moldow who was the brainchild behind this enlightening and enriching learning experience that as he put it, left the students "energized, aspirations completely revved up."
CCBN Space Talks #2: Nurses in Space Makes A Solid Landing
One Tuesday, April 27, 2021, the nurses of the Colorado Council of Black Nurses Inc welcomed the insight of PoSSUM Scientist-Astronaut Candidate and nurse, Starr Schroeder RN (bottom left), and moderator, DEI Chairman Kim Macharia of the Space Frontier Foundation (top right), at the second Talk of the 6-Talk series CCBN Space Talks. Kim's thought provoking questions coupled with a spin in perspective by CCBN's VP Lynn Hoskins RN (top left) on nurses as portrayed in pop culture shed light on how the purposeful eclipsing of nurses in the space program has negatively impacted society and the future of space for the next generation. Special appearances by CCBN Space Expo creator Ana Cox LPN (bottom right) and words of wisdom from CCBN President Robin Bruce RN (bottom center) brought clarity to the next steps needed to make space a reality for all. Special thanks to CCBN Scholar Janaye Culton CNA for maneuvering behind the scene for a smooth broadcast of this Space Talk.

Join The Colorado Council of Black Nurses Inc in supporting under-served communities to be equal contributors in the determination of healthcare standards by increasing the number of Black/African American professional nurses throughout the healthcare continuum.
